Hollywood star Miles Teller has come aboard the streamer Paramount Plus show The Offer as a replacement for controversial actor Armie Hammer.
Hammer previously headlined the series, about the making cult classic The Godfather, but had to pull out in the wake of allegations of sexual misconduct.
Teller, who is known for starring in hits such as Whiplash, The Spectacular Now and Only the Brave, will take on the role of producer Al Ruddy on the series. He will also executive produce.
The offering is based on Ruddy’s experiences during the making of the 1972 film, along with director Francis Ford Coppola, who also co-wrote the screenplay with Mario Puzo. Puzo’s novel served as source material for the film.
The Godfather won three Oscars for Best Picture, Best Adapted Screenplay and Best Actor for Marlon Brando. It is widely regarded as one of the greatest films of the 20th century.
The 10-episode series comes from Paramount Television Studios and writers Nikki Toscano and Michael Tolkin. Production is expected to start later this year.
Teller is currently waiting for the release of Top Gun: Maverick, in which he stars alongside Tom Cruise. The film will be released in November this year.
